Talking with “Big Cuz”: “We can Make History”


I interviewed most of the guys on the team today and over the next couple of days will have their interviews (and hopefully sound) from the day. Here is the Cousins interview. Not all these questions were asked by me, but by the reporters in general:

Has this been overwhelming?

Nah its been cool. I feel special right now.

How ready are you to get started?

I am really ready. Tomorrow is a big day, kickoff to the season. I have been working hard over the summer and ready to get it down.

What have the battles with Daniel, Pat and Perry been like?

Woooo, they tough. Pat and Perry they are vets and they know a lot. They know more than we do. Daniel is strong as an ox.

Who is a better shooter you or Daniel?

I dont know Daniel is a pretty good shooter.

The Freshmen seem really close, is that the case?

YEah we all really cool with each other. But you know, we have known each other since we were babies, especially me, Eric and John. Eric and I are from the same dirt. We are all pretty close. We came in and the other players were gone so we didnt have a choice but to bond with each other.

How good to you think you guys can be?

We can be as good as we want to be. I think we can make history, if we keep working as we are.

Can you go undefeated?

Well with that, we take it one game at a time. Thats every team in the nation wants to go undefeated.

What do you think when you see these banners on the wall?

I mean its pressure. We got a lot of pressure this year.

Talk to me about Patterson. Whats it like to go up against him?

Pat is tough, he is a vet and everything you hear about him is true. That guy can play ball. Bottom line he can play ball. Pat work ethic is out of the roof. I mean he never gets tired. We are all wore out and cant walk and Pat comes out and gets on the treadmill and keeps working. I ask him, “Pat are you tired” and he just says, “nope I am cool.” He sets the tone and we all follow.

Since you have been here, your personality has been big with the fans. Talk to me about you talking to fans?

Thats just me. I like to have fun. I am a person like everybody else. I am not a superstar, I am just like everybody else and like to have fun.

What about the fan attention?

(Laughs) Thats crazy. I have never been a part of anything like that. Its fun though, everywhere you go they know who you are and they show you love. Its fun.

    #1-You are a loser. The guys saying that stuff were just messing around. They were being goofy by saying how excited they were. You are the immature one, and and idiot on top of that, if you actually think people are getting aroused.

    On D.Cuz…can already tell this guy is going to be a fan favorite this year. Seems like a hard worker with a sunny disposition off the court. Good kid.

    I think the “Big Cuz” is the “Big Clause” and Junior just took a squirt on his leg. I suppose I would look pissed too.

    Just read this article about the speed of Wall and Bledsoe. How long has it been since we ran up and down the floor hard and had a pressure defense?? 98?? I mean full tilt the whole game, not every 10 mins.

  7. JMBlue

    6- You seem quite pumped. Isn’t it nice to look forward to the possibilities of this team?

    “Big Cuz” will probably go down in History as one of the most popular Cats ever.
    I believe that he is having so much fun, he may stay around a couple more years.

    And they say this guy has an attitude. Well, if he did it’s been checked at the door cuz he seems just as humble as the rest.
